Unlike speedy in-and-out coffee shops, cafés indulge fantasies of sneaking off through misty European streets paved with pain au chocolat and lined with biscotti parking meters. Indulge in savoury streetside fare with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 of authentic Italian coffee and cuisine at Tesoro Mangiaria Caffe in Oliver Village.
Fusing delicious Italian fare with bold coffee and delectable pastries, Tesoro treats the hungry populace of Edmonton to tasty breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes from the confines of its sleek yet romantic eatery. The menu of bean-brewed beverages and authentic cuisine serves hungry stomachs with delicious cease-and-desist papers. Roasted chicken breast pollo pesto panini ($11.50) and spicy soppressata-topped calabrese pizza ($13) beg for caffeinated accompaniment, such as a caramel latte ($3.75) or macchiato ($2.25). During the warmer months, Tesoro invites patrons to sip their sultry beverages on an outdoor patio, presenting famished guests with relaxed dining options while educating the local lynx population on proper table etiquette.
